Commonplace Book, 45

What is a commonplace book? For me, this is a space where I post interesting links, reflections on what I’m reading, and the newest recipes I’ve been trying out — a collection of miscellaneous micro-posts.

What I’m fixing:

What I’m reading:

It’s a different kind of snow right now, big fat drops falling slowly, almost one at a time, each adding its weight to the drifts in the parking lot.

“You all right, Hank?” says Ruth-Ann, slipping the hundreds I’ve left on the table into her apron pocket without looking at them.

“I don’t know.” I shake my head slowly, look out the window at the parking lot, lift my cup of coffee for one final sip. “I feel like I wasn’t made for these times.”

“I don’t know, kid,” she says. “I think maybe you’re the only person who is.”

  1. I love these posts. That blog article is so interesting…I’m always tempted to “make something” out of my blog but I think I’ll stick to my teeny, no-profit piece of the Internet too. 🙂
    P.S. What a sweetie pie baby!! SO cute.


    • It’s tricky, right? I’m so happy for friends who have been able to supplement their income by writing and I’m definitely not above that (!) but for every blog that navigates the transition well, I run across several that have text interspersed confusingly with ads, too much sponsored content, and too much polish.
